Infectio: Simulation of virus transmission between cells

Infectio is a hybrid stochastic/deterministic simulation software for predictive modeling of how viruses spread between cells in a tissue. The software is open source (GPLv3) and available from GitHub.


When using Infectio please cite this article, in which Infectio is described:

Infectio has previously been used to study the transmission of human Adenovirus type 2 and predict that this happens solely through passive diffusion in the lumen:
